Our primary goal: giving you a positive and fun bicycle experience!

Our guides: professionals at the service of your cycling experience

We work in close collaboration with around 50 professional guides in the entire Brussels-Capital Region and in the towns of Namur, Liège and Mons.

Specialists in history, architecture, nature, culture, …, these guides ensure that your experience, focused on the pleasurable and relaxing aspects of cycling, is positive.

We assess each guide that wants to join our team in order to provide a professional approach and guarantee your complete safety. All guides are qualified to guide a group of up to 18 people, and to adapt the tour to the abilities of each group.

Kris, Louise, Peter, Thomas, Bénédicte, Riet, Marc, … as many guides as there are different personalities, each of whom will share with you, over the course of a bike ride, their enthusiasm for and knowledge of Brussels, Namur, Liège and Mons.

Pro Velo’s guided cycling tours promise:

Freedom and fun above all – in complete safety

  • Our guided tours are a moment of sharing, entertainment, and discovery, which take place in a relaxed and joyful atmosphere.
  • Our guided tours aim to show you the history, heritage, lifestyle, and natural beauty of the Brussels and Walloon regions. Doing so, they hope to convince you to also cycle in your day-to-day life.
  • Safety is the absolute priority of our guided tours. For this reason, we supervise all groups and ensure that each group knows how to safely cycle in the city.
